Well we were almost on our way to Dubai but we arrived at the airport to find that our flight had been cancelled 10 minutes previously because of a ‘crew shortage’. Brilliant.
After a great deal of farnarkling we were offered a flight via Bucharest on Duckair or a flight via Rome on Austrian and Emirates. We accepted the later and then the miracle occurred. Cate had already been booked on an Emirates flight that left a couple of hours after our original flight.
Holy Toledo it is hot here. I have spent the last two days messing about while Cate deals with some business issues and today we are getting out and about.
Raffles hotel is fabulous and we have a room with a view of the Wafi Mall car park.
No photos yet but will take some over the next two days.
